Share this event:


at the Sabes Jewish Community Center (

HOW TO BE A KOREAN WOMAN is a hilarious, heartfelt, and personal telling of Korean-American adoptee Sun Mee Chomet's search for her birth family in Seoul, South Korea. This poignant one-woman show - told from the perspective of an adult adoptee - uses text, music, and movement to explore themes of family, love, adulthood, motherhood and the universal longing to know one's past. On the heels of three sold-out Twin Cities engagements including a run at the Guthrie Theater's Dowling Studio, Sun Mee brings her groundbreaking production to the JCC for just one night.

Directing and dramaturgy by Zaraawar Mistry.

Tickets: $18 General
$15 JCC Members, Students, and seniors
